New TeeJet Spray Tip For Fungicide Applications
The new AI3070 spray tip from TeeJet Technologies reportedly provides thorough plant coverage with minimal spray drift. This spray tip utilizes a patent-pending design that provides two spray patterns at angles of 30º forward and 70º rearward. The leading pattern provides good penetration into the foliage while the trailing pattern provides thorough coverage of the upper crop canopy and grain head. The AI3070 incorporates air induction technology to minimize spray drift, while producing a large percentage of droplets in the medium to coarse category to maximize surface coverage.
The AI3070 was designed specifically for fungicide application in cereal crops making it ideal for controlling fungal diseases. “The prevalence of fusarium in wheat and other cereal crops makes this an ideal nozzle for small grain producers” states Tim Stuenkel Marketing Manager at TeeJet Technologies. “The AI3070 is designed to maximize the efficacy of a grower’s fungicide application which contributes to higher yields and a higher quality grain sample.”
The AI3070 is offered in six VisiFlo color-coded sizes from -015 to -05 capacities. It is constructed of acetal (polymer) with a recommended operating range of 20-90 psi. The AI3070 tips are easily installed on Quick TeeJet nozzle bodies. The tips are currently available at local TeeJet Authorized Distributors.
